“We chose Classic Construction for our home remodel based on Brooks’ portfolio of work, and our confidence in his skill, knowledge, honesty, integrity, and responsiveness. We love our new home!”

“It was a pleasure to work with Brooks and his team. He was very responsive and flex’d to our work schedules for progress reviews and updates of our home remodel. He was very fair in pricing and providing alternatives when a couple unexpected items came up. His team was on-site on a full-time basis (no horror stories of disappearing contractors). His carpentry work is excellent. The work site was clean and sealed off from the rest of the house. Above all, Brooks conveyed an interest in making it a successful home remodel for us from the very start to the final walk through. He has our full endorsement, and we will hire him for our next project.”

Reed and Johanna

“This was our first home, and our first big home remodel. Brooks and the crew at Classic Construction helped navigate our family through what for many can be a harrowing and stressful experience. Always responsive to our requests, tolerant of our concerns, they came in on budget, on time, and—perhaps most importantly—kept our marriage intact. The work they did was absolutely top notch. True craftsmanship, with an obsession for perfection. I would not hesitate a minute to recommend Brooks Weitzman and CCC for your next addition or home remodel.”

“Brooks Weitzman and Classic Construction Company built us a beautiful office space out of a plywood and dirt storage area under our house. The storage area had only exterior access, and Brooks worked with the designer and engineer not only to build the new room but to figure out how to provide inside access – we were dubious, but it worked out really well. The new stairwell looks like it was always there, and we didn’t lose our laundry area!
The project went remarkably smoothly. Brooks coordinated the excavation and concrete pumping flawlessly—the plumbers and electrician were top notch as well. Brooks handled all the City inspections, and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The Classic crew are hardworking and talented (and politically correct!—a must in Berkeley!). Brooks was fair in negotiating fees, and we would definitely recommend him for similar projects.
As an aside, we had a windstorm during construction, and a nearby PG&E transformer blew, taking out appliances throughout the neighborhood. Our tankless water heater stopped working – we thought it was a goner and that we would never have hot showers again (and we had company!!!), but Brooks got on the phone with the rep, figured out the problem, ordered us the right part, and installed it. Brooks is more than just a contractor; he’s also a friend.”

Matthew and Stephanie

“Two years ago, we decided to do an extensive remodel and addition to our little Berkeley bungalow. We wanted to live our lives out in a dream house built to our own specifications.
We hired Brooks, and could not be happier with the results. The construction work was of the highest quality. Everybody on the job, including all the sub-contractors performed at the highest level. We ended up with a house that actually surpassed our own original expectations. And even more shocking – it was finished on schedule.
It was a pleasure working with Brooks. He is always available and he talked us through all the difficult choices we faced, helping us juggle practical cost and construction considerations with our wildest aesthetic fantasies. If you want the best, go with Brooks.”
